The Salmagundi Club. By William 
Henry Shelton, Boston and New York: 
Houghton Mifflin and Company. 
Mr. William Henry Shelton has given 
us a delightful volume in his history of 
The Salmagundi Club, pages of which 
are charmingly enlivened with drawings

book is a photograph of Lowell taken 
in 1879.

Sonnets and Quatorzains, is boldly drawn 
and fearlessly colored. From the Proems,

can see what sturdy admiration guides 
the facile pen of the author. Grave 
or gay, the great Theodore is the "epic 
hero" of Columbia's "living page;" but 
the sincerity of the artist is shown in 
the fact that his brush lays on the 
shadows as well as the bright spots in 
the character of the Great American, 
and Roosevelt himself was big enough 
to appreciate this. Mr. Wilbur has
